measurements rew for vocal recording room

Hi everyone I carried out the acoustic treatment of my room to record the voices, in the past I had already shown you my room, but later I made some changes. Considering that I only need to record the voices, I have only dealt with one area of the room, the rest of the room is not treated.

I created 40 cm broadband absorbent walls, made of low-density glass wool 20kg, on the right wall I used slatted resonators for low frequencies (100-200 hz) was created by creating a 17 cm thick sealed box, inside there is a 20 kg low density glass wool and on the surface the wooden staves about 30 cm wide and almost 1 cm apart were placed (initially as you can see in the picture were 5 mm apart), the ceiling is also made of low density glass wool 20 cm thick with a 20cm airgap. It seems that I managed to get a good frequency response and a good decay time but I don't like vocal recordings, they seem not very detailed. , I am attaching rew measurements waiting to know what you think.

room size:

length 530 cm
width 360 cm
height 265 cm (there is a lowering of the false ceiling by 20 cm otherwise the real height is 290 cm)

Looks very nice from 60 Hz and upwards.

You can however see the reflection from the rest of the room in the impulse tab.

Maybe a few gobos would be a good idea? Easy to move around if you need more isolation.

Try a few more positions to see if the holes at 550 Hz are still present and to get an overall feeling for what you get where.

even if on rew it seems a good result, I don't like the results when I record the entries, the vocal recording appears to be without details, looks dead.

someone will tell me that decay time is low, but I have heard recordings in shooting rooms with a low decay time that work well, which features should a vocal room have?

Can you post an example clip?

here is a test while I record the spoken word, recording was done with the behringer ecm 8000 microphone in the preamp of my interface audio roland v-studio 700, consider that even if I use my amek 9098 preamp with the rode k2 tube mic, the difference is not abysmal, surely it will sound better my amek with rode, but I still don't hear the detail I hear in professional recordings.

I don't think your vocals sound dead, I would even say I can still hear some room in there.

"Professional" recordings usually have a ****ton of processing on it. I don't think anything's wrong with your recording.

perhaps it is not correct to say that my room sounds dead, I feel the lack of detail in the middle frequencies, I think I will have to absorb more medium-high frequencies
